Last full day with our LiveWires and two of our daughters and a busy one it has been – a very windy walk up to Wheal Coates in the morning followed by a good stomp through Trelissick Gardens all illuminated and gorgeous though the rain was relentless.

A delightful day was had by all, half the family going into Truro for shopping and we, with LiveWire T, going into Redruth, enjoying the Welly Dogs, going to Home Ground coffee shop for a treat, playing in the park, chopping the tomatoes for the guacamole for supper and finally learning how to do French knitting.
We were given Daffodils before Christmas and they are still beautiful.
The seaweed along the rope and its reflection in the harbour in Penzance pleased me yesterday.
I love getting on with preparations while listening to Carols from Kings on BBC Radio 4. It was something my Humanist Mum and Dad always did on Christmas Eve and I have done it for many , many years too. It is my time in the middle of all the busyness. I then put on the TV loudly in the sitting room and listen all over again while still busy and content in the kitchen.
Happy Christmas to all my readers. May your days be filled with peace and love and joy.
We spent a delightful evening with the Prideaux Angels last night, a gentle promenade performance with dance, music and narration where the last scene outdoors was the beautiful Snow Globe. It runs until 28th December so if you can get to Padstow, there is a treat in store. You can get a delicious meal in the marquee afterwards too.
To celebrate the Winter Solstice we have had a spiral of candles lit today.
This evening, at astronomical dusk, we were in The Writers’ Block at Cornwall College, to be a part of the “wave of words across the UK.” The event, DUSK, part of the Solstice Shorts Festival, was one of 12 around the country starting at 17.07 in Ellon and ours, the last one starting at 17.40. There were stories, songs and poetry on the theme of dusk at dusk and it was brilliant! The creative space was a delight to be in and among the inspiring quotations on the walls was this one from Neil Gaiman which rang so true for us both.
Happy Winter solstice to all my readers. May the increasing light bring you peace and joy in the coming year.
